Sweating postman, Victoria line, 1st October 2013


It can get very hot on the Tube, so always carry water – and a facecloth.

Sweating postman, Victoria line, 1st October 2013

It was on a Tuesday evening rush hour on the Victoria line after I finished work when, from Oxford Circus to Stockwell, opposite me sat a postman regularly mopping sweat from his face. I didn’t think it was particularly hot during that journey, but perhaps he had a hard day. It took over a week to draw this, I didn’t have time to do much as I was on holiday in Amsterdam.
